The Columns – November


Love Serves had another successful year! With over 90 players participating in the tennis tournament, it was a weekend of fun, food, sport and fellowship.
Our purpose of this tournament is not only to raise money for Project Celebration, (the Shreveport-Bossier Domestic Violence Shelter), but to bring
awareness to the needs of victims in our community. Project Celebration serves those in need of protection from physical abuse, support for victims of rape,
substance abuse problems, and help with anger management. Louisiana ranks fourth in the nation for incidents of domestic violence. It’s time for a change!
Project Celebration has a safe-haven home for emergency shelter from abusive relationships. They provide counseling and parenting classes to help the
clients develop skills to become a part of a healthy society. They also facilitate referral services, support groups, and legal advocacy.
Thank you to all of you who participated in this event. You have made a difference in people’s lives!
